Abstract:

The Energy emitted in the 1-0 band of the Swan system of C2 is derived from photoelectric observations. The intensity distribution as a function of the distance from the nucleus is used to determine the mean densities of C2 molecules for various diameters of the head. These densities vary from 2828 molecules cc in regions close to the nucleus to 67 moleculescc in regions located at one minute angular distance from the nucleus about 5.10 to the 4th power Km.
